Medical Marijuana Advocacy:
She was attracted to the medical marijuana industry for several reasons. The first being that she has a few close friends and family members who have had life changing experiences thanks to MMJ. Secondly, in her job as a retail pharmacist she was seeing first-hand the negative effects the opioid crisis has on both patients and their loved ones and she realized MMJ can play an important role in managing this issue. Finally, as a pharmacist her primary goals have always been to improve her patients’ health and quality of life. Medical Marijuana allows her to fulfill these goals and provide alternative treatments for patients not getting relief from traditional medicine.
